    help please

    ChrisHumbug Level 1

      Hi. Is it possible to set up a webpage that updates on its own from info in database?

       

      So all I would need to do is update the database rather than the update the page manually.

       

      An example of the database would be songs and artists so I add to the database and the page updates from that info.

       

      Hope this makes sense to someone.

       

      I'm also a bit numb when it comes to this sort of thing but if you can keep your answers simple that would be great?

       

      Thanks

       

      Chris.

          Web Apps are your friend.

            This is going to sound really stupid now but I've gone through what you suggested. I've gone as far as building the Web App. I've put it on a page but when i try and fill in the details on the form I've put on the page it tells me that the item is secure and I need to log in. I've not set anything up anywhere on the website a secure area.

             

            Is there anything else you can suggest or can you tell me how to fix this?

             

            Did I say I was a bit thick when it came to this sort of thing.

             

            Thanks again for your help though

              What your asking is not in most systems.

              If you want to update data in the database from a front end perspective you HAVE to login. Otherwise everyone and anyone can update content.

              To update content that updates on a web page in that mannner would be via the web apps and loggin into them and making a web app item and filling in the fields set up.
